Lithium Ion Capacitors
Taiyo Yuden's Lithium Ion Capacitors with long life and high temperature reliability
Taiyo Yuden’s hybrid Lithium Ion Capacitor boasts the key features of batteries (high voltage and energy) while maintaining the traditional characteristics of capacitors (rapid charge/discharge, high durability, safety and environmental friendliness). Unlike batteries, Lithium Ion Capacitors have no risk of thermal runaway and have extremely-low self-discharge, even in high heat environments.
Taiyo Yuden’s breakthrough "Lithium Pre-Dope" technology is the key to this device. Lithium pre-doping stores lithium ions at the negative electrode in advance, and enables energy to be used more efficiently and cycle life to be increased.
Taiyo Yuden’s Lithium Ion Capacitor is designed for use as a backup power source in servers and storage devices for integrated circuits, processors, memory, and more which require a small footprint, long life, and reliability in high-temperature conditions. The Lithium Ion Capacitor can also be used as the main power source for small appliances thanks to the Lithium Ion Capacitor’s rapid discharge and low self-discharge characteristics.
